Collect Chasing Slipper Berth in 2012 Pago Pago Stakes

Exciting Kevin Moses trained colt Collect gets a final chance to press his claims for a Golden Slipper berth when he lines up against All Too Hard in the 2012 Pago Pago Stakes at Rosehill Gardens.

It stands as the final chance for him to move up the order of entry for the glamour two-year-old race which is set to take place on April 7.

The Fastnet Rock colt has signalled plenty of potential in his two career starts by finishing fourth in the Silver Slipper before running third in the Group 3 Skyline Stakes.

A win in Saturday’s Group 2 Pago Pago would ensure him a Slipper berth, with the Pago Pago champion given exemption from the ballot.

Trainer Moses said yesterday the talented horse had shown impressive form this year but had lacked luck in both his starts.

“He ran first-up in a Group race and finished fourth and he’s come out the other day in another Group race and run third,” he said.

“He just hasn’t had much luck.”

Collect will run from one barrier inside (7) race favourite All Too Hard and will be ridden by champion jockey Damien Oliver.

It will be no easy feat to cross the line in front of All Too Hard, who has received plenty of hype in his young career.

Much of the hype has come due to his status as a half brother of wonder mare Black Caviar but the colt has produced some impressive results.

He currently sits as second favourite in the preliminary Golden Slipper betting market ($6.50 – bookmaker.com.au) on the back of a win in the Talindert Stakes on debut before dominating the Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes to win by four lengths.

Despite his status as a likely Golden Slipper front runner, the much-hyped colt is no certainty to run in the high profile event.

Co-trainer Michael Hawkes said earlier this week they would hold off on making a call on the Slipper until they saw how he pulled up after Saturday’s race.
